Not everyone appreciates a sudden fright, but actor Neil Patrick Harris says he loves fear and feels that is the reason he enjoyed hosting the Tony awards.
"I love being scared, walking through a field of maize in October with people jumping out and frightening me," contactmusic.com quoted Harris as saying.
"I know they can't touch me and I like the experience of it - weirdly, I think hosting the Tony Awards is almost the same thing. I'm out there, it's live, something could go terribly wrong, but we have lots of outs and I have a teleprompter and we've already rehearsed everything. It's fun and a bit dangerous, but I know I'm going to be all right," he added.
The actor hosted the Tony award ceremony four times before passing on the baton to actor Hugh Jackman this year.
